This week on Brain Chamber we outsourced for contestants and dragged Pip and Charlie in all the way from the Andamooka Yacht Club!
See how they did against each other and listen back to Brain Chamber here:
To help raise awareness for threatened Australian species, The Department of the Environment are inviting all Australians to create baked goods shaped like endangered critters or plants.
This is only the second time the competition has been run, but that hasn't stopped Arid Recovery from putting their kitchen skills to the test once again!
Field Ecologist & Community Co-ordinator at Arid Recovery, Nathan Beerkens, last year earned himself the "Commissioner's Choice Award" for his cake shaped like a Sawfish - all four species of which are endangered in Australia.
We're halfway through the first round of our second season (time just flies in the Brain Chamber!), but we've still got a way to go until we hit the quarter finals!
Courtney and Maddie put their book knowledge to the test for National Book Week on this special edition of Brain Chamber! Listen back here:
When the counting started at the Far North Football League Mail Medal ceremony at the Roxby Downs Sporting Car Club, Ashley Baxter didn't expect he was in with a chance to win.
"I just didn't think I had a great season, was pretty disappointed from today [Hornridge were defeated by Roxby District, 38 points to 76, in the semi-finals]," Ashley said.
"I was just sitting at home, getting updates that 'You're in the lead! You're in the lead!' and it was getting closer, so I thought 'I better go out there or I'll look a bit foolish.'"
Originally performed on stage, Windmill Theatre Company's Rumpelstiltskin is making its way to the Roxbylink Cinema!
This latest imagining of the mischievous imp was filmed by Australian National Theatre Live, and will be presented to the people of Roxby Downs for Book Week.
According to Country Arts SA's Arts Programming Manager, Louisa Norman, the original stage production had a successful run in Adelaide back in 2016, and if you think you know the story of Rumpelstiltskin - think again!
We're back at it again with more Brain Chamber, this time pitting the council against themselves!
Listen back to Stue and Drew fight for office bragging rights here:
Representatives from the West Adelaide Football Club have this week made their way to Roxby Downs, running training sessions with local football teams and school students.
Gemma Prendergast, WAFC's dietician, dropped in on RoxFM's Hub Cap to talk about the free nutrition sessions she's running in town.
The first session will be held at 10am at the Community Youth Centre and is all about nutrition for children.
For the second year in a row Andamooka is taking part in the South Australian Living Arts Festival for the whole month of August.
This time around a colourful display of mosaics adorn the fencing around the community garden running along side the community hall.
This year, artist Heather Gordon shared her passion for mosaics with the residents of Andamooka, teaching them the ins-and-outs of the medium and providing some of her own work to display in the garden.
"It's a bit funky, and there are lots of cool things to see," says Pip Stafford from the Andamooka Yacht Club, which is housed in the community hall.
Last night, Andamooka kicked off National Science Week with the Southern Cross Outreach Observation Project (or SCOOP for short).
The clear night sky proved an amazing opportunity for the Andamooka locals and everyone who drove up from Roxby Downs to get outside and learn about the planets in our solar system from the comfort of SCOOP's portable observatory.
Over the weekend the South Australian Community Broadcasting Association (SACBA) held their annual conference; an event which helps connect South Australian community media organisations, and to give people involved with the industry a chance to learn and develop their knowledge of the sector.
Each event is accompanied by an awards dinner known as the "SACBA Bilby Awards", celebrating the best of community radio throughout the year.
RoxFM's very own Brain Chamber was lucky enough to pick up the "Can't Get Out Of The Car" award; awarded to an engaging segment of a program, and this year Brain Chamber's first semi-final showdown between Cyrus and Amanda (which you can listen back to here) was deemed to be the best of the best!
The Morning Show had a chat with Brain Chamber host, Adrian Friedel, about the show's win - you can listen back to it here:
You can catch Brain Chamber on Thursdays from 5pm on RoxFM, or you can listen back to previous episodes!
